Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty 

Latvian daily Vesti Segodnya  reported on the 16 June, in order to clarify the situation with Putin’s decision to suspend Russia’s participation in the CFE [Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty], Russia’s envoy to Latvia Viktor Kalyuzhnyi visited Latvian Foreign Minister Artis Pabriks.

“When the Russian president made public his decision on the CFE, he listed six reasons that made the Russian Government take this step. The reality is such that this decision was influenced by the position of the Baltic countries – namely Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia – as far as this treaty is concerned. Russia has urged the Baltic countries to join the CFE on a number of occasions. But there has been no positive reaction,” Kalyuzhnyi told Vesti Segodnia, after his meeting with the foreign minister.
